Trust them on the tyres, I went from Cheng Shangs (dont ask they were cheap , Very very cheap) To pirelli 5000's. I could hardly touch the accelerator in the wet in a bloody auto!!!
When i got my new tyres fitted i can almost floor it without spinning up! The price you pay for really good tyres is worth every cent. The handling has doubled in the wet, tripled in the dry. I was stunned as to the difference it made!
Never will i buy cheap tyres again!
